Exploding plants and impressive hail

Our whole street looks like the trees up and down it exploded. There are leaves everywhere, each grey roof has an even covering of downed leaves.
Storms came racing through, tornado sirens yelled at us to head to the basement and we still got a pizza delivered! Poor guy looked horrified as it was pitch black and hailing when he arrived. It was only 6pm and should really have been daylight, even fading daylight would have been acceptable. Pizza was successfully delivered and he scuttled back to his car with the pizza bag for shelter!
The hail sounded as if it was determined to break any windows in it’s path. No windows broken but it left lots of piles of icy pebbles. Hail is amazing stuff, takes ages to thaw and has wonderful patterns to each little vicious round piece. Some clear, opaque, translucent and some all of the above in one rock hard, ice stone.
I wish I could make beads like the hail, each different but a collective brilliance.

Wonderous Hail
